Paul H. Smith, PhD, is a founder and past-president of the International Remote Viewing Association. A former Army intelligence officer, he served for seven years as part of the military’s top-secret remote viewing program. He is author of Reading the Enemy’s Mind and The Essential Guide to Remote Viewing. He currently serves as president and chief trainer for Remote Viewing Instructional Services.
Here he presents some advanced methods used to gather more detailed information about the remote viewing target. He notes that while remote perception is not really a sensory process it appears as such within the human mind. A variety of exercises can be used to acquire a better sense of the target’s ambiance and purpose. In the most advanced stages, remote viewers engage kinesthetically with the target and may even use modeling clay to create three-dimensional images. These advanced stages of training are associated with a style known as “controlled remote viewing” or CRV.
